Basically, the Pod is a beanbag with a screwthread to fix to your camera. I got the red pod for my D50, but I find the red pod only supports the body when fixed and placed on my table, my kit lens is pointing down, seems not big enough to support the camera. Have to do some adjustment to the pod before I can take a decent picture.
Overall, the beanbag idea is great, esp for putting on ledge, and where tripod is no possible/available. Just that $35 for a beanbag seems quite excessive now. I leave it at home, as I now can carry my tripod with me tied to my bag.
I think if your lens is much heavier than the body, it would result in the Pod tilting forward because the screw is situated in the middle of the Pod. Prob better to just get an ordinary beanbag instead. Easier to balance and adjust.
Yeah, but it seems so difficult to buy one nowadays....;(
Having said that, the pod is really a sturdy beanbag with thick padding, so can give good protection. It's filled with these tiny beads. I just wished I could shift the screw thread to the edge so that it would support better, but that would mean another hole...
